Actor and comedian Hannibal Burress has confirmed his role in Spider-Man: Homecoming, saying he plays a gym teacher who doesn’t realize that Peter Parker is Spider-Man.
”I play one of the dumbass characters that don’t realize he’s Spider-Man. He’s Peter Parker,” Burress told the Breakfast Club Power radio show. “I’m just a guy who’s like ‘Oh man, this guy’s really athletic.’”
Though Burress did not refer to his character by name, a purported leaked callsheet from the set of the movie lists him as “Coach Wilson.” This may lend credence to the other characters listed on the sheet, including Bokeem Woodbine as Shocker.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out in theater July 5, 2017.
